Mary Chalmers Voss (Chilly) married Tom Holland, a telephone engineerfrom Scotland. They lived in amongst other places, Mowbray, Cape Townand on the banks of Boksburg Lake where it is thought he died.
Tom and Mary had four girls, the youngest being born after TomHolland had died during a bad flu epidemic in 1919: His parents(especially Grandma Holland) were apparently not very kind and accusedAuntie Jean, their Grand Daughter, of being responsible for his death.They apparently believed she had not looked after him properly whenshe and her pregnant mother ( Mary) were also ill with the flu. AuntieJean was the only Grand Daughter to be disinherited by her Hollandgrandparents.
Mary brought up the four girls on her own (five years differencebetween each successive child). It is thought that wealthy Uncle Bobhelped her financially. Once widowed, she lived in Mowbray, Cape Townand Arcadia, Pretoria and died at The Valley in Elgin where she hadmoved in her last years to be with Mary, her daughter.

Frederick Walker enlisted as a Private in the 9th Battalion RoyalWelsh Fusiliers (No 12590) during 1914 and was involved at the Battleof Loos in the latter part of 1915. He was severely injured in actionand eventually taken prisoner by the Germans and imprisoned in EastPrussia. His was an amazing story in that he suffered severe memoryloss as a result of his injuries and mistreatment by the Germans. Forreasons which are unclear (probably his mental state/loss of memeory)he was not repatriated back to the UK until 1921 and was eventuallydischarged by the army in 1924. During this time his family had beentold by the MOD that he had been killed in action on 15/9/15 andindeed there is an inscription on the Loos Memorial to this effect.They were not to see him again until 1953 when, still suffering frommemory loss, they were reunited. After returing in 1953 he again lostcontact withthe family and never saw them again. The date of his deathis not known.
